Ok, I know this has probably already been answered but I am unable to find it in the fourm.
I am going to run my second batch this weekend and I had some problems with a low OG on my current batch. When would be the correct time to take an OG reading? When the wort has cooled, when I have added it to my primary fermentator (which already contains 2 gallons of chilled water), or after I get everything good to go and just before I pitch the yeast?
I am not for sure on what type of beer I am going to do next, but I am planing on trying a batch where I steep grains.
